The “riser” pad, which is thicker at one end or the other (front riser or back riser), or adjustable riser which have pockets either side and front and back into which shims can be inserted. Other pads are made with an opening to allow extra room for the withers of the horse, some are shaped to compensate for lordosis or swayback, and many modern “space age” materials are used, such as gel or memory foam to absorb shock, and modern synthetic materials with wicking properties to absorb moisture or sticky pads to prevent movement of the saddle.

The original purpose of the saddle pad was simply to protect the saddle from dirt and sweat, as the panels of the English saddle provided the necessary padding and protection for the horse. It was a simple pad, either a neutral shade designed to be nearly invisible under the saddle, or, more recently, white, and shaped to fit the outline of the saddle.
